Antarctica holds a special fascination for people wishing to see its rich and diverse wildlife, vast scenic beauty, massive glaciers, icebergs and ice shelves. Jason Anthony will share its Environmental History on Monday, September 16, from 3:00 – 4:00pm.
Steve Raymond will give three talks on “Scientifically Based Optimal Brain Health” at the Lincoln Home. Advances in research have led to the understanding that the brain changes which lead to dementia usually occur 20 years in advance of symptoms and a diagnosis. An extraordinary amount of research is now focused on what we can do to prevent and even turn around early degrees of Mild Cognitive Impairment. There is very good reason to be optimistic!
A big discovery in the last decade has been the discovery of Neuroplasticity. It is now proven that the brain has the ability to develop new synaptic connections based on the stimulation that it receives, and will respond favorably to the health conditions of the body based on life practices. The purpose of these talks is to provide you with sources of information so you may judge for yourself what steps you wish to take to maintain Optimal Brain Health.
The talks are part of the “Dementia Friendly Lincoln County” education series. They are scheduled for three Thursdays, on August 8, September 19, and October 3. These free talks will run from 12:00 noon to 1:00 pm, and a box lunch will be provided. The three talks are individual presentations covering the same material.
Please RSVP by email: email@example.com, or 563-3350. The Lincoln Home is located at 22 River Road, Newcastle.
What are the benefits of downsizing to Assisted Living? Am I ready? When does short-term stays/respite care at the Lincoln Home make sense?
The Lincoln Home is hosting a free “Residents Answer Your Questions” meeting on Wednesday, July 31 at 9:00 am. Reverend Ed Wynne and Bonnie Wynne will share their perspectives from their 2-plus years of residency at the Lincoln Home. They will answer questions from the audience on various aspects of senior living and downsizing from a larger home. Previous short-term residents Rona Hokansen and Juliette Williams will share information on Short-term stays at the Lincoln Home.
